Hi, two doubts:
1. Is it OK to disable/remove Unattended Upgrades on Debian testing?
2. If the answer is 'yes': which would be the best/proper way to do it?
Thanks a lot!

I use systemctl to mask all the apt-daily units:

systemctl mask apt-daily-upgrade.timer
systemctl mask apt-daily.timer
systemctl mask apt-daily.service
systemctl mask apt-daily-upgrade.service

I have not tried, but if you still want the apt update (download indices) but not the upgrade (install new packages), you might only need to mask the *upgrade* units.

Kind regards,
